James Emerson Foor (born January 13, 1949) is an American former professional baseball player. He was a left-handed pitcher who appeared in 13 Major League games played (but only six innings), all as a relief pitcher, for the Detroit Tigers and the Pittsburgh Pirates between 1971 and 1973.

Foor went to McClure High School in Florissant, Missouri, before being drafted in the first round, 15th overall, by the Tigers in 1967. Jim made his debut with the Tigers on April 9, 1971. He pitched 3 games for them total that year, giving up 2 earned runs, walking 4 and striking out 2. In 1972, Foor once again struggled with control, walking 6 in just 3 and 2/3 innings. He ended that season with one win and a 14.73 E.R.A.

On November 30, 1972, he was traded by the Tigers with Norm McRae to the Pirates for outfielder Dick Sharon. In 1973, Foor pitched in three games for the Pirates, walking one, striking out one and giving up no earned runs. After the season, on March 28, 1974, Foor was once again traded by the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Kansas City Royals for Wayne Simpson.

He would never play again in the major leagues, and finished his career with a 1–0 record, a 12.00 earned run average, and five strikeouts.
